Front Row Get Creative - Luke Jerram

We'd love for you to get involved with our #FrontRowGetCreative challenge

With Lockdown 3 well underway and no end in sight, we thought we'd offer a little light in the darkness, so we're launching Front Row's new project Get Creative, in collaboration with BBC Arts' Culture in Quarantine.

We're very keen to encourage you to create a piece of art, with guidance and inspiration from the country's leading artists. You'll only need readily available materials and you certainly don't need to be a professional artist to take part! Everyone is welcome.
Next up is the artist Luke Jerram who focuses on sound, which has been an important component to much of his work, from installing 2000 pianos in public spaces in 65 cities around the world to etching the sound of his own voice on the engagement ring for his wife (which actually plays!). We invited Luke to record himself in his studio as he shows us a new approach to listening, which informs his own approach to the art he makes, and which you can try at home with just a pencil and paper, and a mobile phone.

Please share your sound notes and post your audio recordings on social media using the hashtag #FrontRowGetCreative and we'll show those that catch our eye on the BBC Arts and Front Row websites. Check out the BBC's Terms of Use and Privacy Policy - links below.

We can't wait to see what you create!
